For high-tech wiping, lightweight Evolon RE is now available starting from 30g/sqm. The material meets the needs of cleaning specialists for more sustainable wiping solutions. Evolon RE offers the same high quality and material performance as all other Evolon textiles.

Tarpaulins made from recycled raw materials presented by Mehler Texnologies®

When it comes to tarpaulins on trucks, both protection of the transport cargo and advertising for the transport company place high demands on the material. Mehler Texnologies® tarpaulin material ranks among the premium products for truck tarpaulins. The company is a pioneer in sustainable development and is showcasing POLYMAR 8556 ECO CF. This unique material has a 25% share of recycled raw materials in the coating mass. In addition, the material is made with 100-percent R-PES yarns.

In terms of sustainability, its benefit is its 100-percent PET composition, making FILFLEX easy to recycle. FILFLEX offers customers easier handling during sewing and the seat covering process.
